Yesterday when I left you we all had just sat down for lunch. I always bring our lunch and bring enough for Mum. She is not really able to get out much anymore. She gave up her car about 1 1/2 years ago so she is rather housebound as both my brother and his wife work full time. Now with Chuck retired we will be able to visit more often. We stayed for about 3 hours and then had to leave as we had an appointment in Belleville at 4:00 p.m.
On the way out we stopped quickly at Home Depot and this car was in the parking lot. Terribly blurry. I didn't follow my usual rule and take two pictures of everything.
This is a solar installation just down the highway from my Mum.
The clouds were constantly changing. It looked like rain one minute, then clear the next.
This is the giant apple at "The Big Apple" in Colbourne. We have not been there in years. The place gets mixed reviews. It is basically a large bakery and outside they have mini-putt. We had a pie from there years ago and we were not impressed with it. I have read a number of reviews and it doesn't seem any better. Too bad as it is right off the highway and many people must visit it.
We have watched this barn deteriorate over the last 29 years. If we have a few more very snowy winters I imagine it will just collapse.
We pulled off the highway to this great fruit and vegetable stand called "Rutherfords". They are open from about mid May to mid November. Every fruit and vegetable you could want with many of them coming right from the farm located behind the store. They have everbearing strawberries that are so good I can never resist buying them. They also have the added bonus of many adorable animals.
This chicken was very sociable and posed nicely for photos.
These two llamas ( I think) are hilarious. I have never been able to get a decent photo of the brown one. Whenever someone comes over to the pen he gets all huffy and stomps off into the barn.
This one just ignores everyone but at least he stayed put.
The little chicks (? sorry, I don't know much about chickens) came running over when they saw us.
We heard a noise and turned and looked beside us and this one was in the tree!
Back on the road again and this black cloud descended. This time along with it came quite a bit of rain. By the time we got home it had stopped.
We made it to our appointment in Belleville on time then came home and had supper. I was standing at the sink doing dishes and I looked out and Oreo was waiting outside. I went out back and sat and cuddled her for 15 minutes or so and then came back in and finished the dishes. Nice way to end the day!
Just a few errands today and some yard work. I am off to bake a peach pie now. The peaches are fantastic this year.
Take care and have a wonderful weekend!
